I am honored that Lancaster Stands Up has endorsed me in my bid for the 97th District PA House seat. Lancaster Stands Up encourages people to engage politically and raise their voices because this is their democracy -- it is OUR democracy.
I believe that our state government is not doing the things we know it needs to do. We know working families do not benefit from trickle-down economics; they benefit when they can earn livable wages and they have access to affordable healthcare. We know that children need a quality education and yet our schools are among the most unequal in the nation. Our lawmakers too often choose to ignore the facts and work against the interests of Pennsylvania’s working class and working-class families. We need to do better now, before the hour grows late. I’m running to make sure our democracy serves the people: that it takes care of our families, our communities, and our commonwealth.
